Elder Financial Abuse
Combating elder financial abuse is a high priority for state and federal securities regulators, but the reality is that abuse of our most vulnerable population happens every day. There are many protections afforded under state law and FINRA rules for victims and for financial advisors spotting potential abuse to prevent it from happening in the first place. Our attorneys are advocates for investor protection and especially protection of our senior population from financial abuse. When abuse happens, special protections under the law may entitle a victim to recover enhanced financial damages – in some states treble damages and attorney fees.
